Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Everybody give thanks to the tapers

I want us all to take a moment to thank the tapers who are recording the Dead shows and uploading them on a daily basis. We are listening to each nights performance within 48 hours of the concert. How cool is that??? The people taping the concerts invest a lot of time and money into their passion, and their passion is archiving the concert and sharing it with the world. It can be a thankless job, and usually denies you a decent seat with your friends.

Thanks guys - I'm enjoying the ride!

Yep, nice job guys.
I'm not going to be listening to any of them, but still, nice to see the generosity is present even after all these years.

Who fucking cares? Why even post then?
There's one thing I've noticed about this forum,
it's the "holier than thou" attitude of the old school listeners. I don't consider you guys true Dead Heads. The band has always been about constant experimentation with style and sound. Nothing has changed. To say that one era is better than the next is highly subjective. We all like the band for different reasons. So, for those of you farting dust and listening to old Dead, lighten up. It doesn't make you cool. It just comes off as snobby and quite boring. And yes, I occasionally fart dust myself.

I posted because I wanted to say thanks to the tapers for keeping a taping tradition alive. I could have ignored it yes, but I chose not too. I tape shows myself (over here in the UK) and always feel that tapers are doing a great job in recording and archiving live events.

So please keep your foul mouth to yourself and read my entire post before you go off on one.

THANK YOU TAPERS!!!

Its incredible to be able to enjoy every show on this tour. And its definitely worth adding that the sound quality on every show so far has been amazing! ( theirs really not a lot of need to pay 15 bucks for it) your basically getting a professional sounding recording and just the right amount of crowd noise.

I was just at the buffalo show and sitting by myself and overheard some guys a row in front of me making fun of the mic stands by the board....

"Why don't they just buy the download the next day for 14.50 insted of paying 1000's of dollars on equipment?"

I guess they just don't understand.

Thanks guys for all your hard work and effort. It doesn't go unnoticed.

I do say kudos to them. And as far as the show I'm denigrating, I did like Warren's vocals on So Many Roads. He should think about covering that with Govt Mule (perhaps into or out of Patchwork Quilt).

Just heard it myself... really like what he's done with the tune!

Warren sounds great singing Jerry songs... I'm sure Phil and Bob love singing them too but Warren is such a great singer that its great to hear his take on these beautiful songs.

OH YEAH AND THANKS TO THE TAPERS. You all rock my socks. I've been able to follow this tour from my comfy computer chair and get all excited for Rothbury thanks to your efforts. The sounds quality is excellent!
